Submission FC Light Gi Review

Submission FC Light Gi Summary

The submission FC light gi is a fairly nice gi at the lower end of the bjj gi price spectrum. It offers a decent quality, further enhanced by its nearly $100 price tag. If you’re a gi buyer on a budget, but still want a decent gi, then this is the gi for you.

Honey Badger Gi Review

tatami-fightwear-honey-badger-gi-review-04

Honey Badger Gi Initial Thoughts

  • The pants are the same as the Tatami Zero G.  Very lightweight and it would be perfect to wear in a tournament.
  • The jacket is a single weave style jacket.  The collar isn’t the thickest but isn’t super easy for training partners to manipulate (like my Vulkan).
  • The stitching really pops and the pictures here barely do it justice.
  • Comes with a pretty simple, but cool, gi bag.
  • If you’re into other stand-out Tatami gis like the Terere gi, the Honey Badger gi is right up your alley.

Summary

The Honey Badger Gi is one of the newest offerings from Tatami Fightwear and is definitely a fitting addition to their collection.  It has very bold colors and design, but is also very functional as a tournament and training gi.

tatami-estilo-4-gi-review

Introduction

Tatami Fightwear is a very popular British, and now global, brand and the Estilo is one of their most popular models. In the past we’ve reviewed quite a few of their gis, including the Tatami Fightwear Enson Inoue Signature GiTatami Fightwear Estilo 3.0Tatami Estilo 3.0 Ladies Gi, Honey Badger Gi, Tatami Fightwear Zero G V2 Gi ReviewTerere Signature Gi, and the Zero G Lightweight Gi.

This review is totally false and full of lies. Tatami Fightwear has promised me an endless supply of scotch and Reese’s Peanut Butter cups in return for a positive review and I have happily obliged as long as they promised to also send me a copy of every Pride dvd to date and a bunch of stuff out of the SkyMall catalogs that you get on airplanes. On with the reviews!

X-Guard Kamikaze Gi Review

x-guard-kamikaze-gi-review-banner

Introduction

 A very solid Kimono in construction and looks

X-Guard is one of those companies that dove right in to every aspect of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community as soon as they got in on the market. They pay close attention to their customers and because of that, have been moving more and more Gi’s. Folks like Vinny Magalhaes and Rodrigo Teixeira can be seen sporting X-Guard gear. With cool freebies and solid quality, you can’t go wrong with an X-Guard Kimono.

My first thoughts out of the bag were that the gi:

  • Has good stitching
  • Has very cool texture on the patches
  • Is a much better design than X-Guard’s past offerings
  • Appears clean, yet bold

top-bjj-gis-for-women

When you’re a woman who trains jiu-jitsu, it can be ridiculously hard to find a quality gi that fits right. Lots of female BJJ practitioners can get away with wearing men’s gis, but you have a large bust, narrow waist, or wide hips, that’s not always possible.

GiReviews Presents: What is the strongest gi for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)?

Strongest Gis for BJJ

What is the most durable / toughest / strongest gi for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)?

At first glance, this is a silly question.  This is because the strongest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi is often times not a BJJ gi at all.  It’s a judogi.

While they may look alike, there are some significant difference between Judo gis and BJJ gis.  Typically, people don’t wear a BJJ gi for judo, or vice versa.  In official competitions, you must wear the appropriate gi for that type of competition.

The nature of Judo and BJJ is similar, but different.  Although both are jacketed grappling styles, the sport is opposite.  Judo is primarily concerned with throwing and standup grappling, whereas BJJ is essentially focused on grappling on the ground.  Therefore, the gis are constructed to meet the needs of their respective fighter.

Scramble 1chiban / Ichiban Jiu Jitsu Gi

scramble-1chiban-gi

Scramble, the clothing brand that originated from the UK, came out with their very first jiu jitsu gi almost exactly five years ago. This article was posted around the time when all the excitement that surrounded its release was at its highest.

Named 1chiban, after the Japanese word which means “Number 1”, this gi received much adulation from people who loved Scramble’s minimalistic yet stylish design.

The pre-order rush for the 1chiban was probably comparable to that of the latest Apple gadget. Only a set number of gis were prepared by the company, and pre-order was limited to a chosen few!

Below is the summary of our archived posts that tackled our anticipation of the 1chiban’s release.
